It looks like the Empire State Development Corporation's Peter Davidson, who joined the NYCRC in China, was a convenient prop. Reuters reports:
Thus, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Empire State Development Corporation President Peter Davidson, and New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, on video and in person, have promoted the project to potential investors in misleading and even ridiculously dishonest ways.
Davidson asserted that Atlantic Yards "will be the largest job-creating project in New York City in the last 20 years."
Markowitz, Davidson, and Bloomberg all conflated the $1,448 billion "Brooklyn Arena and Infrastructure Project" marketed to the investors with the larger $4.9 billion Atlantic Yards project, slated to include 16 towers.
Markowitz initially aimed to join Davidson on the tour in China in early October, but backed out--despite a go-ahead, according to his office, from the New York City Conflict of Interests Board--after publicity in this blog and the New York Post.

The 10/5/10 request, however, was more narrow, regarding Executive Director Peter Davidson's planned trip to China on behalf of the New York City Regional Center's effort, under the EB-5 visa program, to market an investment in Atlantic Yards that would bring Forest City Ratner a $249 million low-interest loan.

Atlantic Yards Report
From today's Crain's Insider:
MOVING OVER: Empire State Development Corp. Executive Director Peter Davidson joins the Port Authority Monday. He will initially focus on economic development and energy policy.
Davidson, I noted earlier this month, had long had Atlantic Yards in his portfolio, overseeing Project Director Arana Hankin.
Last year, in a trip to China to boost Forest City Ratner's Atlantic Yards project among potential investors, Davidson claimed, incredibly, that it would "be the largest job-creating project in New York City in the last 20 years."
The project previously was in the portfolio of Executive Director Peter Davidson, to whom Arana Hankin, Director, Atlantic Yards Project, reported.
Ten months later, still waiting for a response to my FOIL request about state official Peter Davidson's trip to China promoting Forest City Ratner's misleading "green cards for investments" venture
Atlantic Yards Report
On 10/5/10, I sent the following letter to the Empire State Development Corporation (aka Empire State Development):
Under the Freedom of Information Law, I request records regarding Executive Director Peter Davidson's planned trip to China this month on behalf of the New York City Regional Center's effort, under the EB-5 visa program, to market an investment in Atlantic Yards.
To clarify, Arana Hankin's direct supervisor has always been Peter Davidson, ESD's Executive Director.
Does Adams agree with ESDC President Peter Davidson's claim, in China in support of Forest City Ratner's effort to get immigrant investor funding, that Atlantic Yards would "be the largest job-creating project in New York City in the last 20 years"? | Press Room [cached]
